600 riders, 20 nationalities - biggest UCI stage race for mountainbikers in the world!

The Belgian Mountainbike Challenge (BeMC) has 600 professional and serious amateur riders from 20 countries taking part. It is the biggest UCI stage race for individual mountainbikers in the world and will see 2016 world world champions participating including Tiago Ferreira, UCI Mountain Bike Marathon World Champion and Sally Bigham European Mountain Bike Marathon Champion. The BeMC stands out with a great atmosphere, combined with a tough and demanding course. This makes it one of the most popular mountain bike events in Europe as a result it has doubled in size since it started six years ago.



BeMC is a International Cycling Federation / Union Cycliste Internationale (UCI) accredit event and one of the hardest mountainbike races in Europe. As a UCI XCS class 1 status it is one of only four similar races around the world. Over three days, from the 12th to the 14th May, it covers 260 Km / 8,000 altitude metres in La Roche-en-Ardenne, Belgium.

Here is some coverage about this:
